Even more reasons to dislike beauty pageants

Not that I needed any excuses.

If you had any doubt that Miss California, Carrie Prejean, lost the crown, if indeed she ever had a chance to win it, with her answer to Perez Hilton's question about states legalizing gay marriage, then read fellow judge Alicia Jacobs' account of her voting. After hearing the answer, Jacobs, a former Miss Nevada USA, writes on her blog, "if I could have made her 51st runner-up, I would have." In a blog item titled "Pretty is as pretty does," Jacobs offers a behind-the-scenes account of the judges and pageant officials involved. Included is Jacobs' account of her reaction as she heard the answer:

"As she continued to speak, I saw the crown move further & further away from her. When she finished, she looked strangely proud for a moment. Personally, I was STUNNED on several levels. First, how could this young woman NOT know her audience and judges? Let's not forget that the person asking the question is an openly gay man, at least 2 people on the judges panel are openly gay. Another judge has a sister in a gay marriage. Her very own state pageant director, KEITH LEWIS is an openly gay man who has been a very generous benefactor of many ways. (2 ways in particular....if you get my drift??) Did I mention I was STUNNED?"

Carrie Prejean's crime was that she had her own mind. She should have learned, coming up through the pageant ranks, that she is supposed to merely say what the judges want to hear.

Instead, she answered truthfully, lost the crown, and is now labeled a stupid cunt by the left. Bravo, tolerant left. You're showing your true colors again.
